Amidst reported deaths of journalists working in different organisations here late Sunday death of a senior government officer of finance service has come as a blow for many including his departmental colleagues. Additional joint commissioner of sales tax department Vijay Kumar Dubey who was posted at Ranchi succumbed to Corona at Asharfi hospital . News of his death came to fore only on Monday early morning when colleagues of his department started assembling at his Dhanbad residence.
Born and brought up at Dhanbad, Dubey was also posted as joint commissioner of sales tax department twice before joining to his present post. He was admitted to a private hospital about a month ago and succumbed in hospital.
Meanwhile, on Sunday after a gap of 12 days Dhanbad received less than 100 positive cases in a day during this second wave of the pandemic.
